Lidl Bit of Hope

Hey gals and guys ๐Ÿ˜,

I’m a bit emotional today!It was my last ever day in Lidl.

My day started off very early.4am to be exact๐Ÿ˜ซ.A few of us from Lidl signed up for the charity walk ‘Darkness Into Light’ to raise money and awareness for suicide and self-harm pervention.I am not a morning person at all but it was totally worth it for such a good cause.We called our team ‘Lidl Bit of Hope’.Mental health is an issue I am passionate about and as someone who suffers from depression and anxiety it was great to see the turnout.Its shows that the stigma is slowly being removed around mental health.

I done the 5K walk alongside Grainne,Claire and Katarina.We had such a laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚200,000 across Ireland participated in the walk.Thankfully it was a beautiful morning as the sun rose at around 4:45am.We took a few selfies as the view was amazing ๐Ÿž

After the walk we took a short outdoor yoga class.None of us were particularly good at it but it was fun ๐Ÿ˜ŠWe talked to a few of the other volunteers in the hall were we got a cup of tea.We signed our names on the charity banner too.

Claire had to head off as she was working at 7:30am ๐Ÿ˜ฎGrainne,Katarina and I headed to a restaurant called ‘The Galleon’ for some scrambled eggs and bacon ๐Ÿฅ“๐ŸฅšJust what we needed along with another 3 cups of tea ๐Ÿต

Katarina headed home after as she needed to get some sleep before work.Grainne gave me a lift home from Salthill which was a dream so I got to say goodbye to her as it was my last time seeing her while I was still employed in Lidl ๐Ÿ˜‹

As soon as I got in the door I went straight back to bed and fell asleep ๐Ÿ˜ดI didnt feel tired but it was a good and deep sleep.I woke up at around 12:30pm and watched tv for a while.Then I got a shower and got ready for my last ever day in Lidl.

Getting into work was a pain the ass.Ed Sheeran is playing concerts all weekend in Galway so the town was packed with people and traffic ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽคI’d love to go to be honest.I got asked to go by Dylan and I said yes until he then snapchatted me asking if I wanted to hook up.Eh no thanks.

I was working from 6:30pm-11pm so my last day was a short one.I was delighted because both Ellen and Chris were working with me on my last day ๐Ÿ˜ƒMy two work besties.Chris got a little emotional too which was unexpected but lovely ๐Ÿ˜‚The team bought me a card and a cake which made me tear up a bit.It was so thoughtful ๐Ÿ˜

I know I complained about the job alot and I did hate it but I will miss the people I worked with immensely.They were there supporting me through the good and bad these last two years.I have made some friends for life too.I’ll always have great memories from my time in Lidl 936.Its true what they say its where you work,its the people who you work with.So thank you team 936 Lidl for everything ๐Ÿ˜€
